The Strong Delusion of God
The Strong Delusion is coming; the strong delusion
will be sent by God, and the strong delusion will be directed not only at those of the world that are lost in their sins, but specifically at all lukewarm, undecided, and
2Thesalonians 2:11: And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie
2Thesalonians 2:12: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Webster’s definition of “unrighteous”:
evil, guilty, immoral, unholy, unjust, sinful, unworthy, wicked.
Satan sends the Lie, God sends the Strong Delusion
The lie is already here and will continue to become multifaceted; to some
the lie will represent a world savior in the form of a politician that
promises world peace. To another, a religious leader that will join all
apostate faiths, the occult, paganism, and the new age teaching into one
satanically influenced soul destroying religion. To another, they will
seek to worship self and man over God and live vicariously through a
hero of the day, whether a movie star, sports icon, or musician. Others
will foolishly perpetuate the lie soon to be brought to the world by
demons posing as aliens who will teach us we are their prodigies
experimentally bred here millions of years ago, and there is NO GOD.
Others will continue to accept the age-old lie of atheism and evolution,
with no provable foundation to their belief other than outright
rebellion against God. All will come under the Strong delusion of God;
all will be destroyed for all eternity.
Author's note: As I write this to you, I'm trying to be succinct,
but my fear for you and for others, as well
as for myself, is great and I may reiterate often in
an attempt to wake us all from our spiritual slumber.
Romans 13:11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
My sole purpose in writing to you is
to bear witness of the seriousness of this issue. We must not take our salvation for granted, but should work it out before God in fear and trembling.
Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
Not all will be saved that claim to be Christians.
Consider: Are you secure in your walk with the
Lord or are you basing your trust of your salvation in corrupted Biblical
teaching under a false prophet? Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus,
or are you dependent upon your pastor or priest to get you into heaven?
Christ has stated that many will come before His Throne of Judgment believing they were saved, even holding up that they had cast out demons and healed the sick, all in His name, yet
He will deliver to them
the most feared of all rebukes possible; “I NEVER knew you, depart from me”.
Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works?
Matthew 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.
Why would God send a Strong Delusion upon the
Because lost (unsaved) people of the earth including those that claim to be Christians “believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
II Thessalonians 2:7-12
God will send the strong delusion on those among us that are guilty of not
accepting the truth of His Holy Word found within the Old and New Testament Bible. Their
guilt also lies in their accepting and following after the unrighteous
teachings perpetrated by false prophets within the Christian church.
These false prophets are
controlled by seducing spirits; and while working under the guise of end times preachers, pastors, teachers, elders, and church
laymen they are preaching, teaching and promoting doctrines of devils.
1st Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaks expressly, that in the latter times some
(Christians) shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
To clarify; the strong delusion will not be sent by God solely because of the actions of the false prophets, or
due only to the blasphemous content of their false teachings, but
also the strong delusion will be sent upon those that claim to be Christian and are
proven apostate due to their acceptance of ungodly teaching.
The Strong Delusion will be sent upon the false teachers and
those that believe them.
will lukewarm Christians be included in the strong delusion curse from
Those that claim to be Christians have been given much in the
teaching and knowledge of God.
Luke 12:48 For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required..
Lukewarm and undecided Christians are
denying the deity of Christ by not bowing to His authority in all issues
of life. They are not obeying the teachings of God in His Holy Word, but
instead are following after false prophets that teach a new and
Does God's Word speak to the issue of undecided and lukewarm Christians?
Yes, Jesus states He will be disgusted with
lukewarm Christians to the degree He will be nauseated by their presence.
Revelation 3:15 I know your works, that you art neither cold nor
Revelation 3:16 So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will
spew you out of my mouth.
Revelation 3:17 Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not that you art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and
Can Christians that profess to know the Holy God of the Bible be lost
due to their wrong interpretation of scripture?
Yes. God has only one true interpretive
meaning in His Holy Word. It cannot be rightfully interpreted and taught
by false prophets that are under the influence of seducing spirits, nor
can it be correctly espoused by Christians that have no personal walk or
relationship with Jesus.
1 Timothy 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny
him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
there punishment for Christians that do not OBEY the gospel of Jesus
2Thessalonians 1:7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
2Thessalonians 1:8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus
Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse...
Luke 12:9 But he that

What is the "LIE"
that God's Strong Delusion will cause people to believe?
First recognize that the "lie" is NOT a lie spoken or sent
by God. Also, do not confuse the "lie" with the "strong
delusion", they are two entirely different things, however, combined
they will become a curse on the lost and also on the lukewarm in the Christian
doctrine being taught within the Christian churches today is the "lie".
2Thesalonians 2:11: And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie
The "strong delusion" is God's curse upon both those that teach
the false doctrine lie and those that believe the false doctrine lie.
The Warning of Jesus
Jesus has warned emphatically that God will be so displeased with people during the last days that He will cause them to believe a lie in order that they may be cursed.
Consider: Is God speaking of sending a strong delusion on only those that are lost due to their having not accepted Jesus as their Messiah or is this warning for all people, including lukewarm Christians?
Some of you may think the strong delusion is meant only for unbelievers and
will not affect "Christians". If that is the case, then answer
this; why would God need another (additional) reason to condemn those that
are already condemned due to their not accepting His only begotten Son?
believes in Him (Jesus) is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." John
Are there really False Prophets teaching a 'lie" within the end-time
Yes, so much so that Jesus made a point of warning the disciples (and
us) regarding them.
When speaking of false prophets, Jesus was not referring to the common deceptions of the world that would mislead the
lost throughout history. He was specifically warning His Christian disciples, and us as His
Christian followers, to beware of False Prophets within the
Christian church family.
Jesus was warning us that seducers in our midst are of much more danger to the church (then and now) than are the open and obvious persecutors. Jesus foresaw the false teachers (seducers) that would be embedded within our Christian churches today.
Who are the seducers within the Christian church today?
The seducers in the
Christian church today are those that have gained good reputation, perhaps through pseudo Biblical teachings, but afterward, having betrayed the Holy Word of Jesus entrusted to them, have turned away from the Truth entirely.
Under the prompting of evil spirits these seducers have now begun teaching heresy and error
compounded; of which Jesus said are "doctrines of devils".
Ignoring the clear scriptural warning of being cursed for adding to or taking away
from God's Holy Word, today's false prophets are foolishly, and to their own eternal
destruction, teaching a new and different gospel.
Stop for a moment and consider this; Do you realize that God's Word says there WILL be
Christians leaving the true teaching of God and accepting the
teaching of evil spirits. If the dawning reality of that is not enough to make you fall on
your knees pleading God's mercy in fear of this becoming your own fate,
now consider that God also says that "doctrines of
devils" will be taught in the end time Christian churches? Is your
Church allowing doctrines of devils to be taught?
A belief (or system of beliefs) accepted as authoritative by some
Devils: Spirits of evil and adversaries of God; tempters of mankind; masters of Hell
are those that are teaching the Doctrines of Devils being taught in Christian churches today?
The seducing laymen, teachers, prophets, elders, deacons, and pastors that have compromised,
omitted, changed, added to, and intentionally wrongly interpreted the Word of God to
accommodate the cultural standards and desires of the lost people of
today are teaching False Doctrines that God calls Doctrines of Devils.
Do you know what is considered
to be a doctrine of a devil according to God's Word?
Examples given of doctrines of devils being taught
in today's churches include (but certainly are not limited to) the
Where as God’s Word calls an evil act done by man as being sin, false prophets
within today's Christian churches call this same sin good and
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good
evil; that put darkness for light, and light for
Where as God states that He is God and there is no other god beside Him.
The false prophets today teach that we are ALL gods.
Isaiah 44:6 Thus says the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and
beside me there is no God.
Where as God says that if we pray we shall receive that which is in His Will, these seducing false prophets now teach that we are capable of receiving anything we desire regardless of God’s will, merely through our OWN will power.
1John 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing
according to his will, he hears us:
Where as God states that we are to seek first the kingdom of heaven and
then all things needed for our care on earth will be given to us. The seducers among us teach that we should
first seek after material gain, wealth, and prosperity, and of course
give them a good share of it.
1Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all
evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
Where as Christ said that no man can come to the Father, but through Him,
and that God draws mankind through Jesus that we may be purified of our
sins before approaching God. Today’s
seducers teach that there are many ways to God.
John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which has sent me draw
him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Where as God demands that we honor and worship Him and Him only, the seducers in the Christian
churches today demand that we honor and even worship them and our fellow man instead.
Romans 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became
Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and
worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator
Where as God says that effeminate and homosexual men are an abomination
to Him, many of today's ministers teach that homosexuals and effeminates are NOT
sinning and that God will go against His own Word and bless them anyway
because He is a "God of Love'.
1Corinthians 6:9-10 Know you not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers,
nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor
extortionists, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he
lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
Jesus speaking of the signs and wonders that will deceive the end times
"Even him (anti-Christ), who’s coming is after the working of Satan with all
power and signs and lying wonders"
Christ Jesus warned us in Mathew 24 that the “him” that shall rise up is the anti-Christ, and will do so with direct empowerment from Satan, and will show great signs and lying wonders that will be so grand and spectacular as to fool many.
The great signs and wonders being done by the false prophets are not true miracles, but are
instead, “LYING wonders empowered by Satan, and are NOT miracles empowered by God.
These false prophets take advantage of men’s lack of knowledge regarding God’s Holy Word.
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of
knowledge: because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you, that you shall be no priest to me: seeing you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children.
Surely, if men had read God’s warnings in the Bible they would recognize these false prophets spoken of in end time’s prophecies. But, sadly, yet it
is their due; they
are capable of being deceived by falsehood, trickery, magic, lies, their
own arrogance, and other deceptions sent
on the world by Satan through seducing spirits.
For us as true Christians, that is, those of us whom have asked with a broken and contrite heart for God to forgive us in the name of Jesus, we must also pray that God would protect
and keep us from the great lie that Satan
is now inflicting on the world. Pray that our God would not send
the strong delusion upon us.
Will lukewarm Christians accept the anti-Christ as being Jesus? Yes.
Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall
show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if possible, they shall deceive the very
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they
received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved."
Because they did not receive the love of the TRUTH; the TRUTH being that Jesus is the ONLY way to God and is the true Savior, Lord, King, and Ruler over all creation here on earth, God
is sending a Strong Delusion to curse them in order that those that accept the lie shall remain in their sins.
If you are lost in your sins without the freely offered salvation of Jesus at the time of the rise of anti-Christ you will remain lost. If you are a lukewarm,
undecided, corrupt Christian that has not accepted Jesus Christ as your ONLY means of forgiveness before God, then you will receive the strong delusion from God Himself and be cursed.
God has given you the opportunity to repent today; if you refuse you will remain in your sins when the anti-Christ comes. If you believe you will recognize the anti-Christ and will not accept him as the false messiah, God’s Word says otherwise. God states clearly that because they would not believe the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness, HE WILL cause them to believe the lie.
Never before in the history of the world has there been a time of prophetic fulfillment such as this. Today all of the final prophecies of Bible Scripture are coming to complete fulfillment quickly and with an exactness of accuracy that is astounding. As a Holy Spirit filled Christian with “eyes to see and ears to hear”, I am in awe at the exponential rapidity toward completion in which God is bringing about these promised end time events.
It is absolutely imperative that you accept Christ as your Savior, your Lord, your King, and your Ruler now. Do not make the mistake to think you will be “raptured” out of the world before the tribulation, or that you can wait until tribulation begins and then decide to bow your knee to Jesus as King. For those of you that are undecided (lukewarm), make up your mind quickly; repent of your sins before God almighty now, today, and do not wait for tomorrow.
God will soon send a strong delusion upon the people of this world.
Are you foolish enough to think that God will fail to do that which He has promised?
yourself to not be deceived; follow
the teaching of God's Holy Word written in the Old and New Testament
Bibles. Read His Word for yourself and pray that He would show you His
truth as He meant it to be. Turn away from the lying false prophets that
are within many of the corrupt churches today. Seek God our Creator
through Christ Jesus and Christ Jesus
alone. Do not seek after wealth, materialism, and prosperity. Seek God in
truth and spirit. Do not seek after power, self worship, and attention
to yourself. Do not seek self gratification of perverse and ungodly
desires by living your life vicariously through actors, musicians, the
wealthy, sports icons, politicians, or your pastor. Hold no man or
woman up as being worthy of your attention-turned-worship. Heed the Word
of God Almighty ONLY.
Testament prophecy of God's wrath on unbelievers:
Isaiah 66:4 I also will choose their
delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I
spoke, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose
that in which I delighted not.
God have mercy on us all.
